The Gambia is a friendly and accessible West African country, absolutely teeming with rare and exotic birds, drawn to the fertile areas around the Gambia River and on the coast.
Let me take you on fascinating bird watching trips, throughout the length and breadth of my country,
at very reasonable cost. I am a member of the RSPB and WABSA and I am listed in the Bradt
Guide to The Gambia. I'm based in the foyer of the Kombo Beach Hotel.
We can visit coastal areas such as: Koto
Stream, Cape Creek and Crocodile Pool, Bund road, the Lamin
rice fields, Yundum, Tanji Nature Reserve and the Faraba
Banta Bush Track Bird Reserve, Brufut forest, Marakissa
rice fields, Pirang Fish Ponds, Abuko Nature Reserve.
If you have a few days to spare there are
more exotic species further up
country: Tendaba Camp, Jangjangbureh (Georgetown) or Basse Santa
Su. This would involve 1-3 nights: 2-4 days. The cost would include accommodation,
creek trip at Tendaba, guiding and transport. See photos
and comments from some of my clients over the years.
I am now taking bookings
for the 2020 / 2021 season.
